Love Photos. Images and pictures of nature in love.

Valentines Day Series

- Storks -

I've decided to make some justice to the theme: Love. A lot has been said, written and sung on the subject. This major force, unique, surrounds us, pass us trough, guide us, unites us and divides us, as a thin web of silk wires. With intricate pattern and color, sometimes soft and sometimes loud, it's present in the most intimate of each one and makes us what we actually are.

This is the first of three series that I share and submit to your judgement...

Your comments and critiques are most welcome,
Alfonso Paz

Wildlife Photo | animal picture - Snakes, Lizards and cousins - Publication

wildlife photography | sample picture or image of a publication of photos on Lizards snakes and similar animals
wildlife photo - REPTILE IMAGES - animal pictures

New Publication on SCRIBD - Snakes, Lizards and cousins. A series of photos and pictures of one of my favorite subjects.

For these marvelous creatures, fascination can only be compared with their less appealing aspect and behavior. (...) don't really represent a threat, the single idea of touching death itself, is maybe appealing to the animal (primate) inside each one of us...
To photograph them is to get closest to the animal, but more then that, is to get back in time and understand they're journey and value they're existence. Among the thousands of species in our world, my favorites are: komodo dragon, all sorts of snakes and serpents, frogs and toads, crocodiles and alligators, turtles, chameleons and friends. (...)

Wildlife Photo | animal picture - Photos and images that chose us - Zebra

wildlife photography | photo of a zebra from behind | an unusual perspective of the animal
Animal Picture - A photo of a Zebra - behind the scenes

What do you see when you look?
 ... and the images that chose us ...

To cease the constant background noise, small, closed and oblique from mind and thoughts, may well be the ultimate human experience. In some cultures it is. The nirvana, enlightenment, or any other sort of state of Being only happens when the I (self) no longer exist.

"When reality breaks through you and empties your guts, part of what we thought we were ceases so violently that we stop being people"

This photo is part of a collection of images and pictures which the starting point is the animal itself. Its more like reverse photography (if it exists) than a standard approach to light capturing. Confused? Don't be! I'm still trying to figure it out myself... It's part of the journey. Wanna help?
Hope you enjoy it. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Photography and Wildlife Fascination

Start at the beginning may seem a redundancy or superfluous, but it is not, in fact. For the first time in these whereabouts, I try to share images and ideas of the animal world and my feelings towards nature, towards a world that materialized before my eyes every moment, with every photo.
My quest is to seek for the holy grail, and my path and vehicle is photography. Your comments, critiques and collaboration will be my fuel.

Hope you enjoy this journey thought the animal world in pictures.
Man made man, I stand Animal before you,
